The Top 10 Underrated Superhero Film

What exactly is an underrated superhero film? It could be a superhero film that was critically panned, but is in fact pretty good, like Brightburn, if you thought that was good (which it isn’t, but you get the idea.)

1. Batman: The Movie (1966)

Adam West is still seen as a vaguely embarrassing weird uncle by many current superhero fans. The truth though is that Batman: The Movie is the best superhero movie ever made, and it’s not close.

2. Superman 2 (1981)

The second classic Superman film is fondly remembered by critics and fans, not least for the wonderful screwball banter between Superman (Christopher Reeves) and Lois Lane (Margot Kidder). 

3. Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988)

Jason comes at her with edged weapons, and she lights him up with electrical wires. He tries to strangle her, and she drops a house on him.

4. The Heroic Trio (1993)

Johnnie To’s largely forgotten superhero martial arts masterpiece is a brutal ballet of rustling cloaks, shotgun blasts, and babies who are rescued less often than you might think.
